WHO IS A MOMIN? A TRUE BELIEVER? (PART – 2)

WHO IS A MOMIN? A TRUE BELIEVER? (PART – 2)

The true Momin believes in Allah, trusts in Allah, has faith in Allah, always in a state of tawakkul [rely] in Allah. He is always content, happy and thankful to Allah. He lives with the constitution of the Quran and Sunnah.

Some of the ayaat that list the qualities of a true Momin are:

● Ayat 26, 27, 31 Surah Al-Imran

“Say: O Allah! Owner of Sovereignty! Thou givest sovereignty unto whom Thou wilt, and Thou with drawest sovereignty from whom Thou wilt. Thou exaltest whom Thou wilt, and Thou abasest whom Thou wilt. In Thy hand is the good. Lo! Thou art Able to do all things.” [26]

“Thou causest the night to pass into the day, and Thou causest the day to pass into the night. And Thou bringest forth the living from the dead, and Thou bringest forth the dead from the living. And Thou givest sustenance to whom Thou choosest, without stint.” (27)

“Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.” (31)

● Al anaam Ayat 59:

“And with Him are the keys of the Invisible. None but He knoweth them. And He knoweth what is in the land and the sea. Not a leaf falleth but He knoweth it, not a grain amid the darkness of the earth, naught of wet or dry but (it is noted) in a clear record.”

A Momin elevates his connection to Allah with the detachment of Duniya like. They used to say “If you see a man far away from Duniya, seeking Aakhira, get closer to him. He is close to Allah and Allah fills his heart with wisdom.

The knowledge of Allah is light. Allah sends it to the heart of whom he loves.

Some of the constitution from the Quran, a Momin should live with it:

● Surah Hud ayat 88

“He said: O my people! Bethink you: if I am (acting) on a clear proof from my Lord and He sustaineth me with fair sustenance from Him (how can I concede aught to you)? I desire not to do behind your backs that which I ask you not to do. I desire naught save reform so far as I am able. My welfare is only in Allah. In Him I trust and unto Him I turn (repentant).”

● The cave Ayat 39

“If only, when thou enteredst thy garden, thou hadst said: That which Allah willeth (will come to pass)! There is no strength save in Allah! Though thou seest me as less than thee in wealth and children.”

● The bees: Ayat 127

“And do thou be patient, for thy patience is but from Allah; nor grieve over them: and distress not thyself because of their plots.”

● Anfal Ayat 24

“O ye who believe! Give your response to Allah and His Messenger, when He calleth you to that which will give you life; and know that Allah cometh in between a man and his heart, and that it is He to whom Ye shall (all) be gathered.”

Our Imaan is veiled between us and Allah by our sins, attachment and love of others. The more we have attachment to anything of material status, the more we have veil between us and Allah. The more we detach ourselves, the more the veil will be lifted and the light of Allah descends on us.

● Aal e Imran Ayat 160

“If Allah helps you, none can overcome you: if He forsakes you, who is there after that that can help you? In Allah, then, let believers put their trust.”

● Al aaraf Ayat 188

“Say: “I have no power over any good or harm to myself except as Allah willeth. If I had knowledge of the unseen, I should have multiplied all good, and no evil should have touched me: I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have faith.”

● Al jinn Ayat 21, 22

“Say: “It is not in my power to cause you harm, or to bring you to right conduct.” (21)

“Say: “No one can deliver me from Allah (if I were to disobey Him), nor should I find refuge except in Him.” (22)

● An nisa Ayat 38

“Nor those who spend of their substance, to be seen of men, but have no faith in Allah and the Last Day: if any take the Evil One for their intimate, what a dreadful intimate he is!”

● Saba Ayat 20, 21

“And on them did Satan prove true his idea, and they followed him, all but a Party that believed.” (20)

“But he had no authority over them― except that We might test the man who believes in the Hereafter from him who is in doubt concerning it: and thy Lord doth watch over all things.” (21)

● Ankaboot Ayat 3

“We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false.”

● Yaseen Ayat 82

“Verily, when He intends a thing, His command is “Be” and it is!”

● An Nahl Ayat 40

“For to anything which We have willed, We but say the Word, “Be” and it is.”

● Ar Room Ayat 4

“With Allah is the Decision, in the Past and in the Future: on that Day shall the Believers rejoice―”
